I liked Only When I laugh


So did I. Great little show. So much so I'd quite like to spend the rest of my life on a hospital ward. :)

It would interesting to write an updated version of Only When I Laugh. It could show them trying to get hot water brought over so they could get a wash, hilarious conversations with staff that with very poor English who are trying to give them medication, etc.

That was Only When I Laugh. You've clearly forgotten about Gupta!

Ah, but was he an agency worker who kept insisting you take your pills and doesn't understand when you're trying to tell them you were given them by another nurse only an hour ago?

Maybe there should be an irony symbol. Like Rolling eyes.

It would work like this:

Chip is so funny Rolling eyes

I give up. :)

Although Gupta wasn't agency staff, he was a full time orderly, I think.

Well, I'll happily administer the Bishop, but I'll let you tackle the douche, Nurse Dolly.
